Did you read my post last week about DIY Roman Shades? As promised, I’m back with an update! As you saw in the last post, I made my shades with a white cotton.
I assembled the shades on a drop cloth that I use to spray paint on. Some of the paint from the drop cloth stuck to the slats where there was liquid stitch. Moral of the story? Use a clean drop cloth. Definitely, a “live and learn” moment.
My husband (so smart) had the idea of attaching trim on top of the slats where the paint had rubbed onto the fabric. Seriously, brilliant. I used a liquid stitch to add binding on top.
Guess what? I like them 10x more than when they were plain. Maybe 100x more. It gives them a more polished look. It might be a little much if you were using a fabric with a busy print (like my chevron shade), but for the white…perfect.
Enjoying the Good Life,
